VIGNA “Castel Ringberg” on the Alto Adige Wine Road is the most important property of the renowned Elena Walch wine estate and is the origin of some of the most awarded wines of Italy. In the midst of about 20 hectares of vineyards with a view of Lake Caldaro lies the romantic little Castel Ringberg castle, built in 1620 by the Habsburg dynasty. Today, the wines mature in the barrique cellar of the castle after the grapes have been vinified at the Elena Walch headquarters in Tramin.
Castel Ringberg is open for visitors; its charming atmosphere is the setting for wine sales, a small wine tavern and guided tours through the surrounding vineyards ending with a wine tasting. Enjoy this idyllic manor surrounded by nature and discover the estate wines. The Elena Walch team looks forward to your visit!

The impressive Mendola mountains in the background and the dreamy view of the lake make this a unique setting for unforgettable company celebrations, weddings and conferences. Castel Ringberg, with its historical walls, is a special venue with a story that is rich in history. It can be rented for a few exclusive events each year. The castle was completely renovated in 2015 and includes two charming “Stuben” (traditional dining rooms) and a light-filled banqueting hall complete with a brand-new, fully equipped catering kitchen and a barrique cellar. The ample panorama terrace with its view of the lake, the castle garden or the picturesque vineyards supply the perfect backdrops for striking photos.
